The 24 T-1 t-shirts will be exhibited in the Benesse Art Site Naoshima!


Hi all!

As we announced earlier in this page, the delivery of the t-shirts has begun!
Do you already have plans as of where to go wearing the T-1 t-shirt?
There’s one place we’d love to recommend.

This is Benesse Art Site Naoshima, located in an island on the Seto Inland Sea. Naoshima is a small island, only 8.13 square kilometers in size, its population only 3,500.

Located in this island full of nature (the southern section of Naoshima is part of a national park) is Benesse Art Site Naoshima, a contemporary art facitilty. It is a combination of lodging and art facilities, including the Chichu Museum of Art designed by the renowned Tadao Ando.

One of our T-1 operation staffs, Nakabayashi, recently visited Naoshima and was extremely satisfied with her experience.

“It’s a great place full or artwork and nature.

The photo above is a glimpse that art resort.

There’s a reason why we recommend the Benesse Art Site Naoshima.
The 24 T-1 t-shirts will be exhibited in this art site!

Yes, the T-1 Museum in Naoshima is about to begin!

The exhibition takes place from September 5th (Tue) until October 1st (Sun).
The “museum” will be located in a facility called Benesse House. The hallway that connects the Park building (accommodation facility) and the Benesse House Shop will be the exhibition space. Anyone is welcome to visit this exhibition within the open hours of the Benesse House Shop (9:30-18:30).

This is how we plan to exhibit the t-shirts!


This is how we plan to display the t-shirts, looking at the wall on the right side of the photo with the window on the left side of the photo to your back.
At the very left will be a large poster with the concept of the T-1 described. The thin paper used to wrap the t-shirts upon shipping will be used as background, and the 24 t-shirts will be displayed in a 3 by 8 matrix.

The T-1 operation staffs will display the t-shirts at the site, so the display may end up a bit different from the plan above, but at this point this is how we intend to display the t-shirts.


This small island full of nature and art is a great place to display the 24 “lithograph” t-shirts of the top designers of the world! The Benesse Art Site Naoshima was interested in our concept and welcomed our t-shirt exhibition.

If you have a chance to visit Naoshima during the exhibit, please drop by and enjoy the T-1 Museum! (there is a 3 day weekend in September, you know!)
Wouldn’t it be grand if you can wear your T-1 t-shirt at Naoshima?

Of course, we plan to report the details of the coming Naoshima T-1 Museum in the near future!

Until then!
See you soon! See you in Naoshima!
